All-Time Greats VI | box score
Randy Johnson pitched a complete game and Sam Rice had 4 hits and 4 RBI at
Shea Stadium as the red-hot Peckerwood Whipmeisters belted the Bronx Big
Boys by the count of 15 to 3.
The Bronx fans didn’t appreciate the big day Rice had. He lined a base-hit in
the 1st inning, smacked a single scoring a run in the 5th inning, stroked a
one-base hit resulting in a run in the 6th inning and lifted one out of the
park for a two run home run (his 1st of the season) in the 9th inning.
Peckerwood kept the scorekeepers busy in the 8th inning with 7 runs on 4 hits
and the 9th inning when they had 4 runs on 5 hits. Peckerwood managed 20
hits in their victory.
The victory was credited to Johnson(9-1) who went the distance, allowing 3
runs. Johnny Beazley(5-5) was hit with the loss. He was hit hard and gave up
10 hits and 2 walks in 5 and 2/3 innings.
Peckerwood extended their winning streak to 7 games.
Juan Pierre had 3 base hits and Justin Verlander dominated striking out 10 Dg
batters at Yankee Stadium as the Albuquerque Isotopes beat the Dg Dgs by
the count of 3 to 1.
Verlander(6-3) put on a good performance. He allowed just 1 hit and 8 walks
in 7 innings. For the game Albuquerque out-hit Dg 8 to 3.
Joel Zumaya earned his 5th save. Anibal Sanchez(3-10) was the loser. G was
impressed with Verlander and his 10 strikeouts. ‘It’s tough to generate runs
if you can’t make contact with the ball.’
Back to the ’90s
Pedro Martinez struck out 14 batters as the Brooklyn Breeze beat the East
Wareham Pile Drivers by a score of 7 to 2.
Martinez(9-3) had a strong outing. He gave up just 7 hits and 3 walks in 9
innings. Brooklyn finished with 11 hits in the victory.
Bob Ojeda(0-1) suffered the loss. He allowed 11 hits and 6 walks in 8 and 2/3
innings. Martinez was pleased with his performance. He noted, ‘I had good
command of all my pitches. Just as important, my location was right on.’
Roger Clemens tossed a complete game and second baseman Rob Thompson lofted
one into the ‘cheap seats’ as the Boston Shamrocks33 topped the Lowell
Kerouacs by a score of 6 to 2 at Comiskey Park
Boston brought 3 runs across the plate in the 3rd inning with the help of 3
hits. After an out was recorded, Brett Butler started the rally when he
delivered a one-base hit. Thompson was next to the plate and he slapped a
base-hit. Tom Brunansky then lost the ball over the fence for three runs
(his 10th of the season). That scoring would be all that was needed. Boston
managed 10 hits in their victory.
Clemens(20-10) finished the game allowing 2 runs in the victory. Fernando
Valenzuela(16-15) was hit with the loss. He allowed 10 hits and 2 walks in 8
